Reclaimed water restrictions start April 1

Pinellas County reclaimed water seasonal restrictions will begin Friday, April 1. These restrictions limit reclaimed water irrigation during authorized hours to three days per week based on house number.

  • Addresses ending in an even number (0, 2, 4, 6, 8): Tuesday, Thursday and/or Saturday
  • Addresses ending in an odd number (1, 3, 5, 7, 9): Wednesday, Friday and/or Sunday
  • Addresses with mixed or no addresses, such as common areas associated with a residential subdivision: Wednesday, Friday and/or Sunday
  • Lawn irrigation is prohibited between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.
  • Lawn irrigation is prohibited on Monday

Pinellas County Utilities customers are encouraged to follow these restrictions throughout the year to promote a healthy, drought-tolerant lawn with deep roots. These restrictions are mandatory during Florida’s traditional dry seasons from April through June and October through November.

Violations of these restrictions may result in a $193 fine. For more information visit the reclaimed water irrigation webpage, or call (727) 464-4000. Please monitor the website as additional restrictions may be implemented if seasonal rainfall is lower than anticipated and the reclaimed water supply becomes limited.

Those who are not Pinellas County Utilities customers are encouraged to check with their water supplier to verify their watering days.

Customers are also reminded that Pinellas County is following year-round conservation measures allowing irrigation using potable, well, lake or pond water two days per week on assigned days based on house address. To verify watering days, visit the water restriction information webpage.
